Modern medicine has achieved immense success in prolonging life. However, as people age they are more likely to be afflicted by a number of clinical conditions that are still incurable and only poorly understood by the scientific community. Alzheimer's disease, cancer and bowel diseases are among the most prevalent, afflicting millions worldwide. The field of Nano Medicine is aiming to address this challenge using state of the art tools and novel concepts.
Tel Aviv University runs one of the most comprehensive nanomedicine programs. With the support of the Gertner Institute, Tel Aviv University researchers have developed over the past decade new solutions and insights, giving hope to patients worldwide.
